I just started working at a supermarket.  Learning the names of
produce is horrible and I would love to find a webpage that lists all
produce that supermarkets sell, complete with pictures.
The pictures are the most important part! Please help.

Hello there

We might have to put together a collection of pages and websites in
order to get even close to the coverage you want considering the sheer
variety of produce available.  I don't know if you work in a small
town market where selection is rather limited or in a large city where
the produce department handles goods from all over the world.  The
produce market I frequented when I lived in Los Angeles carried
nothing but produce and there was fruit and vegetables arriving daily
from the US, Mexico, Chile, Jordan, Syria, Philippines, South Korea
and more.  The assortment was astonishing.

Having a collection of websites and pages, rather than simply one, may
be better in the long run as I'm sure there are changes and new
additions coming along all the time.

First is a commercial image website where you will find over 500
images of vegetables.   Some vegetables have more than one image, such
as carrots, which have several.  If you click on the leftmost button
under each, you will find a brief description as well as a larger
image.  If you want to download them rather than simply bookmark the
page for future reference, there is a fee.  Click on the link that
says "just veg."

At the same website, if you click on "exotic" you will find over a
hundred images of lesser known fruits and vegetables.

Here is a virtual encyclopedia of fruits and vegetables from Dole. 
Choose a type of fruit or vegetable from the drop down list and you
will be taken to images by variety and more.  For example, if you
choose apples, you will be automatically directed to a page with all
sorts of information about apples.  Click on "types" and you will find
yourself at a page with images and background about the dozen or so
most common varieties sold in the markets out of more than 7000
varieties grown. - - other fruits and vegetables may have fewer images
than apples but there are some for each topic.

The next website might wind up being your favorite resource in this
list and would make a good answer to this question all by itself.

On this page you will find information, background and images of over
90 different vegetables in a click-to-view format:
And on this page a selection of about 50 fruits as well as an
assortment of nuts and berries:
Both of these pages are from Wegmans and may well be among your best
bets for standard market produce and cover most everything you might
run across including such things as varieties of exotic mushrooms.

Try to learn a little about the background and history of the
varieties of produce as well as just the names.  It will impress the
customers and your bosses as well.  All the information you need is in
these websites.

Terms - fruit and vegetable encyclopedia, fruit and vegetable images

If I may clarify anything, please ask.

Cheers and healthy eating

Thank you for the kind words and the stars.  I noticed that a few
images were missing in the Wegmans' site such as green onions and head
lettuce.  Maybe they just figure everybody already knows what they
look like.  There are also a couple of entries that require a second
click on a set of sub-links to access the images.  Things such as
"leaf lettuce" have a series of sub-links to Belgian Endive,
watercress, etc, where images are found.

Best of luck on your new job.  The fact you are going to this extra
work to learn about things makes me believe you will do well at it.

Thanks so much.   The last site was extremely helpful and the Dole's
site has some extremely interesting history.   Although the last site
didn't have pictures for all the produce, I was able to use Google
Images to find those pictures.  Thanks again!
